Game Changes

  • Only Wood, Thatch, and Stone required for Stone Walls/StoneFoundation now
  • All pipes are now considered “foundation” and will not fall apart if a piece is destroyed

    • The damage & resistance of tamed vs untamed dinos respectively
    • The relative weight of each dino species and maximum caps of each dino species per zone
    • The speed of taming

    • The amounts of player and dino food draining respectively
    • The amounts of player water draining
    • The speed of player and dino natural health recoveries
    • The time of Structure open-demolish on PvE (soon this will be per-structure class, but currently is global)


  • Fixed problem connecting to various servers, was a silly data networking mismatch
